Free Pattern: Fuzzy Bear Hat

This free pattern is for the Blythe owners out there, or for anyone else that wants a little hat! I think it is a bit too small for a baby, but if you used a bigger than stated hook and thicker yarn it might do :)

I call it the Fuzzy Bear Hat because I have fuzzed it up abit. Because I use Acrylic yarn I can't felt the finished pieces, but I still wanted this hat to be a bit scruffy. So I took a stiff, cheapo toothbrush and 'scrubbed' at the hat, and it made it slightly fuzzy! Weeee!!

It's mega easy to make - it only took me 3 hours to make and design it, plus Zoe loves it! I hope your girl will too!

Have fun!

Fuzzy Bear HatYou Will Need:· Crochet Hook (I used 3.75mm, F)
· Double Knit/ Sport Weight/ Light Worsted Weight Yarn in 2 colours
· Stitch Markers Or Piece Of Scrap Yarn
· Curved Needle or Yarn Needle
· 2 Buttons
Abbreviations· St/Sts – Stitch/Stitches
· Ch - Chain Stitch
· Sc - Single Crochet
· Slst - Slip Stitch

· Inc (Increase) - 2 Sc into 1 St
· ** - Marks a group of stitches to be repeated until the round is completed
GaugeNo gauge, just keep your stitches nice and tight to avoid gaps in your workFinished SizeMade to fit all Neo BlythesOther Info· Work in continuous rounds; in a spiral, unless otherwise stated. Don’t join at the end of a row; just keep going
· Use stitch markers or a piece of scrap yarn to mark the start of every round. Replace at the start of the next round as you go along. This will help you keep track of where you started, and saves a lot of time if things go wrong!
· I write my patterns in American terms, so Sc means Single Crochet; Dc means Double Crochet etc
· The number at the end of each round is the number of stitches you should now have
· Using a thicker yarn than DK/bigger hook than 3.75mm (F) will result in the toy being a considerably different size to that shown.

*Finish Off, Leave Long Tail For Sewing*BoarderIn Colour 2Attach anywhere on the hat edge with a Slst, and Sc around the entire hat twice. Finish Off and weave in ends.Assembly. Take an ear, and fold it in on itself so it makes a half sphere/cone shape. Thread the tail from the ‘back’ of the ear through the bottom edge, so that the tail is at the ‘front’ of the ear, and sew to the hat. Repeat with 2nd ear.
. Sew 2 buttons to front of the hat.

Earflap Ties
In Colour 2Cut 12 lengths of yarn, each around 50 cm’s long. With a yarn needle, thread 6 lengths onto the bottom of each earflap, so that each length is doubled over (12 shorter lengths in total on each earflap).

Braid the yarn until the length required. I cut mine off at knee level. Tie in a secure knot and trim excess.
I hope you enjoyed the pattern! If you have any problems with it just comment below and I'll get back to you asap
